mm/vmalloc: interchage the implementation of vmalloc_to_{pfn,page}
Currently we are implementing vmalloc_to_pfn() as a wrapper around vmalloc_to_page(), which is implemented as follow: 1. walks the page talbes to generates the corresponding pfn, 2. then converts the pfn to struct page, 3. returns it. And vmalloc_to_pfn() re-wraps vmalloc_to_page() to get the pfn. This seems too circuitous, so this patch reverses the way: implement vmalloc_to_page() as a wrapper around vmalloc_to_pfn(). This makes vmalloc_to_pfn() and vmalloc_to_page() slightly more efficient. No functional change.
